The Positive Web - limit negativity, then get rid of it

The Internet can be a stressful place: Between Facebook rants, Twitter slams, national tragedies, and negative news... just surfing the net always has content that is stressful, sad or even upsetting. But for every negative thing that happens on the Internet, there's a cute puppy GIF, cats with cucumbers, inspiring video and incredible story of kindness to brighten your day.

 

I began combing through the Web and found some of the most happy, positive places out there so you can add them to your bookmark for a break from the constant weight of only seeing the negative side of our amazing lives. This section is completely unformated and is being shaped into a more usable form - but the content I'm collecting and writing is good enough to share. Would you rather go to bed right after hearing Donald Trump or see a cat jumping away from a cucumber?

Start with a calming mind...

8/15/16 - Great troll slam from Kevin Smith protecting his daughter

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What it's like to be my daughter: 17 year old @harleyquinnsmith_ received this message simply for the heinous crime of posting a pic of herself on @instagram. I have zero clue what the reference to #TheMatrix is all about but, wow - way to unload on a teen girl because YOU have nothing to do in life. But even though I should be apoplectic about it, my kid thought it was funny. "I'd be mad if I had a tiny dick and anonymous voice too," she said, bemused by the bitterness. But here's a nickel's worth of free advice for folks like this Troll: if you hate me (or my kid) this much, the better use of your time is to make YOUR dreams come true, instead of slamming others for doing the same. The best revenge is living insanely well - so if you wanna get back at a 17 year old girl for the grievous crime of enjoying her life, the best way to do it is to succeed in your OWN existence. Show the world WHY we should be paying attention to you instead of anyone else. Because randomly attacking others merely communicates how creatively and emotionally bankrupt you are. You think you have something to offer the world but others are getting all the attention? Don't bitch or punish the world: just create. Create something nobody's ever seen before and there is a good chance the world will notice you. Attacking teen girls on the Internet is the saddest form of masturbation that exists and requires no discernible skill or talent. You want attention? Don't make yourself mad, make something original and fun. Because if you're not being useful in this world you're being useless. Don't be useless: go make stuff that makes people happy!
